GPX Route won't import

I have attached a route GPX file that I am trying to import to OpenCPN. All my other files will import just fine, but when I try this one, nothing happens. Thanks for any help. Chuck

Your file doesn’t contain a route, but four individual wpt's, that displays just fine.

Re: GPX Route won't import

Now I'm more confused. All of my other routes are a series of waypoints and when I import them to OpenCPN they imort as a route and show up on my open charts. Why is this one not doing the same? Chuck

Re: GPX Route won't import

Also, they will not import as waypoints. Chuck

Re: GPX Route won't import

Chuck...
The file attached really contains 4 isolated waypoints and no route:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<gpx version="1.1"
creator="PolarView - http://www.polarnavy.com"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd">

<wpt lat="28.9024735" lon="-82.7707471">
   <name>WPT000</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</wpt>

<wpt lat="28.9306049" lon="-82.8410651">
   <name>WPT001</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</wpt>

<wpt lat="28.9519737" lon="-82.8612878">
   <name>WPT002</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</wpt>

<wpt lat="28.9681993" lon="-82.8290657">
   <name>WPT003</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</wpt>

</gpx>
To be a route, it would have to look like this:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<gpx version="1.1"
creator="PolarView - http://www.polarnavy.com"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd">

<rte>
<rtept lat="28.9024735" lon="-82.7707471">
   <name>rtept000</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</rtept>

<rtept lat="28.9306049" lon="-82.8410651">
   <name>rtept001</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</rtept>

<rtept lat="28.9519737" lon="-82.8612878">
   <name>rtept002</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</rtept>

<rtept lat="28.9681993" lon="-82.8290657">
   <name>rtept003</name>
   <sym>dot</sym>
</rtept>
</rte>
</gpx>
You can have a look at any of your other GPX files using any text editor, it will be like this. There is no magic...

Re: GPX Route won't import

OK, So why won't they import as individual waypoints? Chuck

They do import as individual waypoints without any problem for me.

Re: GPX Route won't import

Won't work for me. I import them OK, but they are not in the location they should be.

And where they should be? Can you post a screenshot similar to the one attached (which shows that for me, the WPT imported exactly at the location stated in the GPX file...)

Re: GPX Route won't import

Thanks but I now have it working. I made a new route and saved it as another name. Imported it and all worked fine. Not sure why the other file didn't want to even import the waypoints properly. All is well know. Chuck
